6:00pm
enforcing that law now, how is adding more braackground checks going to make anything easier. you're going to overburden an overburdened system. >> the brady bill, now the brady law since 1993, has prevented 2 million people from buying guns. felons, domestic abusers, danger mentally ill. the problem is the same people can go down the street to a gun show or go on the internet and buy a gun. it's just an utterly untrue argument to say that passing a quote/unquote gun control law like universal background checks would make it easier for criminals to get guns. it's exactly the opposite. it would make it harder for criminals to get guns and reaffirm the second amendment rights that law abiding citizens who haven't broken any laws and are intending to use their guns lawfully. >> they're not going to go to the gun store and fill out a form and go through a background
6:01pm
check. they're going to steal their guns, get them on the black market. >> 2 million people tried and were turned down. >> only 44 were prosecutored. what does that tell you about our ability to deal with that. >> you acknowledged there's more we can do while we focus on that. that doesn't even represent what your members think. >> the question was about common ground. this is clearly not an issue of whether it's common ground. i appreciate both of you being on and having this discussion. it's an important one. we want to continue it. also want to thank all of our guests. to everyone here at george washington university and everyone watching, "piers morgan tonight" starts now. >> a fascinating town hall, anderson. the take away for me is one of the guests said a very interesting thing, which to me gets at the heart of this. if, as the nra would like us to believe, having more guns makes america a safer place, then how do you explain the fact that
6:02pm
america has 300 million guns in circulation and has 20 times the gun homicide rate of any developed country in the world? the math is very simple here. america has too many guns. and it has too many gun murders. too many gun suicides, and too many americans hit by gunfire. and the one thing i never hear from the nra is any plan whatsoever to try and reduce the number of weapons in circulation and to make it less easy for criminals or for crazy people or whoever it may be to get their hands on these weapons. and the reason they don't do that in my view, and perhaps they can correct me and i have tried to interview them, i have had no luck. the reason is because they make money from the sale of guns. they are funded by gun manufacturers and ammunition manufacturers. and until this deadly cycle is broken, america will carry on having more and more guns and more and more gun murders. >> well, as you know, their argument is that current laws,
6:03pm
especially on background checks, need to be enforced. the fact you have felons who have applied for guns, been caught lying, legally trying to get guns, and are able to walk out the door and not be apprehended, not be prosecuted, is ridiculous. that's certainly one of the areas of common ground between gun advocates and gun control advocates. but no doubt, we'll continue to have this debate. >> it raises a lot of issues, anderson. i applaud you for taking a mutual response on that. i find it extremely hard to do, i have to say, but it was a great debate. >> piers, thanks very much. >> nothing underscores the importance of guns in america quite like the sotory today. a shooting outside a middle school they got into a fight. one pulled out a gun and shot the other in the head. he is in the hospital, but apparently he's going to live.
6:04pm
the alleged shooter is in custody. joining me now is van jones and kelly ann conway. welcome to you both. a fascinating debate anderson had with all sorts of voices on all sides of it, but i can't help feeling everyone is missing the point of the debate. the point is the gun, isn't it? >> that's a big part of it. what i saw was a sort of tug of war between two almost theologies. and from my point of view, outsider looking in, seeing a lot of violence on the community level, really both are missing the point. there's a theological point that the gun folks have that it's all about the background checks. the people in the neighborhood are saying, they're probably avoiding that. at the same time, concern about the assault weapons. from a community level, the conversation seems to miss the point, but then on the other side, this commitment to guns at
6:05pm
all costs, guns with no controls at all, what struck me as almost irrational arguments, yes, we don't want guns in the hands of wrong people, but we won't do anything to make sure they don't get there. that is very alarming. >> i agree. david wheeler was at this connecticut hearing that they had with lots of sandy hook families giving testimony. he gave particularly powerful testimony. he lost a child at sandy hook. listen to what he had to say about this issue. >> the liberty of any person to own a military-style assault weapon and a high capacity magazine and keep them in their home is second to the right of my son to his life. >> kelly ann, do you agree with him? >> look, piers, i have four children ages 3 through 8. when you drop them off at school, everyone watching can
6:06pm
appreciate you expect to pick them up at the end of the day, so our grief for our emathy for the families will never end. none of us can imagine being in their shoes and it's tragic. the question of whether this is about guns or not is to me it's incomplete because it's about who is using the guns and how they obtain the guns, and if there's any proposition on the table, whether it's by president obama or senator feinstein or you, that would actually work, i think we've got to stop talking about what makes us feel better and what maybe -- and what actually works or what sounds good because when the emotions are this raw for all of us, we all want to, quote, do something, but we have to do something that works. the fact is in the three massacres we're talking about, aurora, tucson, and newtown, these guys had their guns legally. i mean, i hate saying their names so i say the tucson shooter, he passed an instant background check, and the assault weapons ban had filded in his place, the guy in aurora
6:07pm
still would have had the other two weapons he used to commit his crimes. >> kellyanne. you skillfully avoided my question, which is do you agree with the sandy hook father's premise that the right of his child's life supersedes the right to own a high-powered weapon or high capacity magazine. >> we have something called the second amendment. if politicians out there don't like it, they're going to have to amend the constitution. you're not going to get very far because as you say, we have 300 million guns in this country -- >> let me bring in van because he's champing at the bit to get in. >> here's the big tragedy. so many of the funerals i go to where there are young people in the casket and older people like me and you in the pews, that pain, that suffering, that loss of life isn't in the discussion at all.
6:08pm
nothing stopped a bullet like a job. you have one person who was speaking about what it would take to get a lot of the violence stopped. what they said is basically somebody who these kids will listen to. that's cheap, but we don't spend the money making sure that young people who do not have good role models in their home, have a chance for metership. we talk a lot about violence in the media. you make the point, there's violence in the media in other places but you don't have the violence. what is not present in the media are male role models who don't use violence, male role models who are responsible for these young guys who don't have enough of that. >> you're talking about the gang situation. >> which has not been discussed enough. >> i agree. i totally agree. people say, what about chicago? i couldn't agree more. >> we have that young woman whose name has not been talked about, huh diya pentalten, who was this young african-american, a majorette. she was gunned down, a stray
6:09pm
bullet. here's the thing, if we're going to start talking about violence, i'm 100% for the background checks. i'm very kerned about the assault weapons, but my big concern is you have these two -- >> a cultural question? >> two theologies. one says background checks, it will solve every problem. the other theology that says we can't trust america's government. we're so afrad of america's government and disdainful of america's government that we won't give them any power to protect our children. neither one is going to solve the problem. >> i don't think any of these things are going to solve the problem. the game plan is to try to reduce the problem. >> kellyanne if i'm mistaken, you share the view that the nra put out, which is that you don't solve the gun violence problem in america by reducing the number of guns? >> i first want to say thank you to van jones because i couldn't have said it better myself, and i agree with everything he said. there are too many people looking for the easy fix.
6:10pm
there is no easy fix, and he wants to talk ability the societal problems. i'll talk about the guy in newtown playing video games 24/7 in hismotor' basement with nobody paying attention. >> the big question to me is who is going to stand up and realize the more guns you have out there, the more gun violence? >> for me, that is also a no-brainer. i am for a reduction in the amount of guns that are out there. i think that right now we have 310 million people and 310 million guns. that's a little bit crazy. but i'm tired of going to funerals. and i think that america, we see some funerals on tv, we don't see a whole bunch of other ones. i'm so glad there are republicans who are willing to come across and look at a bigger section of the problem. we do need the background checks, we need the assault weapons ban, but we understonee much more attentive. nothing gets a young man to act like a young man by having good mentorship and good role models.
6:11pm
>> thank you both very much. when we come back, we'll go live to new orleans and talk about sibling rivalry and sport. nobody said an all-in-one had to be bulky. or that you had to print from your desk. at least, nobody said it to us. introducing the business smart inkjet all-in-one series from brother. easy to use. it's the ultimate combination of speed, small size, and low-cost printing.
6:12pm
a hybrid? most are just no fun to drive. now, here's one that will make you feel alive. meet the five-passenger ford c-max hybrid. c-max says ha. c-max says wheeee. which is what you get, don't you see? cause c-max has lots more horsepower than prius v, a hybrid that c-max also bests in mpg. say hi to the all-new 47 combined mpg c-max hybrid.
6:13pm
6:14pm
♪ and the home of the brave ♪ the brave >> well, that was the real thing. beyonce today singing the national anthem at her super bowl press conference. she said there will be no lip syncing on game day. there are more than 100 million viewers. welcome to my new colleague, rachel nichols. rachel is live at the superdome. we're thrilled to have you at the cnn family. congratulations on joining us and may you be here for a long and fruitfully successful time. >> thank you so much. your producer, jonathan, had a hand in me being at cnn. we'll see how i do on the rest of the appearance. if i do well, maybe he'll get a
6:15pm
bonus. if not, maybe he'll get fired and you'll have to finish by yourself. >> let's kngo through the super bowl story by story. beyonce was an amazing moment today. this is a woman under huge pressure because it turned out she lip synced at the inauguration. what better way to respond than to just immediately burst into a live rendition of the anthem and sing it beautifully. what did you make of that? >> yeah, i certainly thought that was -- sports are about competition, right? if somebody hits you, you want to hit them back harder. she certainly showed the ability to do that, and she talked about what she's going to do during the super bowl. she said she's been rehearsing a lot. she said that was the difference between that and the national ajt angsm. she didn't get a chance to rehearse with the orchestra and she didn't want to take
6:16pm
attention away from the president. she said this time there's no question, she will be performing live. she said, this is what i was born for. that's a relief now, we know what beyaups beyonce was born f. we feel she's going to give it her all on sunday. we'll see how she does. >> that was fabulous. let's turn to the titanic battle on the field. the harbaugh brothers, jim and john, of course, dueling away here. it's a unique situation. you interviewed archie manning, of course, father of two of the great quarterbacks, peyton and eli. tell me about that because there's a particular resonance for him watching these brothers go at it. >> absolutely. archie has watched peyton and eli twice. it hasn't gone well for eli. peyton has won twice. he said it's harder to watch your son lose than the other son
6:17pm
win. he placed a couple calls to jack harbaugh, the patriarcpatriarch said, hey, we know what you're going through. take a listen to what he told me. >> jack harbaugh said you told them, hey, at least when the boys play each other, we can root for eli on offense and peyton on offense. you've got two coaches where both sides of the ball matter. >> i don't know what they do. everybody thinks it's so great. it is a great story for everybody else, but that game is not fun for them. >> what is it like as you're sitting there? you know the cameras are on you. >> you have to endure it. just get through it. you know, after the first game they played, that was in the old giants stadium -- >> the first game, sunday night football, a big deal. >> i told them beforehand, those cameras are going to be on us. >> difficult for sure. and not just a nice visit with archie, but last year, i
6:18pm
actually got to go to a harbaugh home, spend some time with jack harbaugh and his wife jackie, and they were telling me stories of the boys. one thing that was fun was those guys are 15 months apart. they used to do what a lot of kids do at that age, put a piece of tape down the middle of their shared bedroom because they were fighting so much over whose space was whose. john harbaugh, the older brother, told me he made a key mistake in the battle. he let jim put the tape in a place where the radio was on jim's side, so jim gott to pick the tunes in their entire childhood. not a wise move. we'll see if he has better strategies in the super bowl. gr. >> it's going to be great. i love family tension like that. let's talk about other stories about the super bowl. one is the apology today from the san francisco 49ers corner back, chris coulliver over thes homophobic remarks. he said he's not that kind of
6:19pm
guy. clearly, he is that kind of guy. >> he thought he was being baited a bit, but whether here was or not, it was something he said. he said today it was the first thing he thought of, but it's not what is in his heart. he also revealed he has a few gay family members and he talked to his mother. seemed as if his mother was the many people who gave him an earful over those comments and certainly expressed his support of the gay community in san francisco. this has been a topic bubbling to the surface more in the nfl in the past year. the other team in the super bowl, the ravens, there all two players who have come out strongly, one for and one against gay marriage. it's an issue that's going to get more attention in sports in the country over the next year or so. it's an interesting societal study, because yousy jackie robinson breaking the color barrier, and so many others in sports. in this issue, sports seems behind. we'll have to see how it catches up to the rest of the country. >> you can have a view on gay marriage, but he was blatantly
6:20pm
homophobic, and i'm glad he apologized. >> also, the other is the ad for volkswagen, featuring a white man with a jamaican accent, my view is a lot to do about nothing. the tourism minister said he found it funny. first, it's a cool accent, and it makes out jamaica is a happy, positive thing. is that the worst thing that can be said about a country? >> good to hear that from jamaican government. i like to waep wake up and find out that we haven't offended another country, but there is something about having controversy at the super bowl. everybody wants to have one. look, they have to be loving it over as volkswagen because super bowl ads, $4 million nearly to get 30 seconds. we have probably done 30 seconds here and we're doing it for
6:21pm
free. they have to be happy. they say they haven't gotten a lot of complants, and we're giving them free advertising. all's well that ends well. >> jamaica is a good place. i have a lot of friends there, including usain bolt. it's great to talk to you. i think you really cracked it when i hear you giving a big report on cricket. the sooner you get yourself over to england and get into cricket, the better. >> i heard there was a legendary match in 2008 you were involved in. i'm going to look into that a little bit. i'll bone up on my cricket and get back toia. >> rachel, a great pleasure to have you on the show and welcome you to the network. thank you very much. >> thank you. rachel nichols and andy johnson kicked off in new orleans, a cnn bleacher report special at 4:00 p.m. eastern. and coming up, my exclusive with casey anthony's attorney. i've been coloring liz's hair for years.
6:22pm
but lately she's been coming in with less gray than usual. what's she up to? the new root touch-up by nice'n easy has the most shade choices, designed to match even salon color in just 10 minutes. with the new root touch-up, all they see is you.
6:23pm
i honestly loved smoking, and i honestly didn't think i would ever quit. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. it put me at ease that you could smoke on the first week. [ male announcer ] some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic
6:24pm
or skin reaction to it. if you develop these stop taking chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, tell your doctor if you have new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. with chantix and with the support system it worked. it worked for me. [ male announcer ] ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.
6:25pm
to the charge of first degree murder, verdict as to count one, we the jury find the
6:26pm
defend not guilty. as to the charge of aggravated child abuse, count two, we the jury find the defendant not guilty. as to the charge of aggravated manslaughter of a child, verdict of count three, we the jury find the defendant not guilty. >> verdict that shocked america. casey anthony found not guilty of murdering her daughter. today, casey unemployed and bankrupt. what is life like now. we have the attorney for casey anthony. how are you? >> i'm fine. nice to see you again. >> lots of developments since we last spoke, and last time, i got a chance to speak privately, not on camera, to your client. she was feeling pretty vulnerable. she was in hiding. she said i didn't kill my daughter, she said. since then, the developments are two of her four convictions were vacated by the court of appeals and you said we will keep
6:27pm
fighting. secondly, she was declared bankrupt last week. "l.a. times" said she's close to a million dollars in debt. what can you tell me about those developments? >> we won in the appellate court in two of the four misdemeanor convictions, and we're prepari g preparing, even started today, seeking further relief to dismiss all of the remaining two charges. as to the bankruptcy case, that's not something that i am involved in other than as counsel to casey. we have a bankruptcy lawyer who has filed because clearly she has no money, she has no assets, she has no job, she has no business. and there are people trying to sue her for reasons best known to them. perhaps self-aggrandizing and publicity, but casey is insolvent. that's a test for bankruptcy
6:28pm
under united states law. >> there's been a big lifetime original movie in the last couple weeks made about casey. stars rob lowe, prosecuting casey anthony. i interviewed rob about this. he said the following. >> would you have personally convicted casey anthony from what you now know about the case? >> my personal opinion is that she absolutely had something to do with her daughter's death. i don't know if it was accident or if it was premeditated. that i don't know to this day, but there's no doubt in my mind at all that she's responsible. >> rob lowe there, he played the prosecutor in the case. what was your view of that? did you see the movie? did casey see the movie? >> i did watch the movie. and certain amounts of humor. it was a distortion of the
6:29pm
truth. that's why i didn't participate in it. i had been contacted by the moviemakers at the very beginning and asked to participate in it, and they told me it was a story to espouse the prosecutor's view. i refused, and i never had anything further to do with it. and i wouldn't now. it was a distortion from the truth. my view is indeed that the character personalities were distorted, and you know, as you earlier led in, talk about the verdict that shocked america, and america wouldn't have been shocked if the truth had been presented. america wouldn't have been shocked except for the media hyping it for their own advertising and rating purposes. the case was fairly simple, frankly. after all of the things we had to go through, there was no evidence saying casey killed
6:30pm
that child, period. and i don't care what movie plot is dramatized. that's the bottom line. the jury saw it, and the lawyers and the judges around the country have seen it. and i'm seeing a great shift in people, starting to understand. you're right. they didn't prove the case. because they didn't have a case. >> did casey herself see the movie, do you know? >> you know what, i don't -- i spoke with her. i know she was not intending to watch it because she knew it would be what it is. she may have seen reruns of it by now. but, you know, i'm sure the position is the same. >> how would you describe her state of mind? obviously, she's got a lot of problems. and obviously, the movie will have done nothing, i guess, to change many americans' perceptions that she must have had something to do with her daughter's death even though she
6:31pm
was, as you say, cleared in the court of law of having to do anything with her child's death. how are you going to work through this in terms of client management and changing public perception? >> there's so many things we have to worry about changing in society. during my almost 70 years, we have watched people change attitudes and opinions on racial questions, political questions, economic questions, military questions. everything that affects our lives. there are people who are never going to accept the reality. there are those who are committed to believing in spite of the absence of evidence that casey killed her child and must have had something todo with it. i can't change those people. they're just going to have to die off of old age. the bottom line is that people sometimes get so cast in positions based on what they read, see, and hear from sound bites and short media
6:32pm
presentations that there's no obje objective to do evaluations. they just go with it. we're seeing the same thing in your main program earlier, which i have been watching. how do you change people's mentalities about some things they're just married to? >> one of the ways, of course, could be that she gives an interview, perhaps to me on this show. and speaks honestly for an hour about her experience and tries to communicate with the american public who still doubt her innocence. >> well, you know, look. casey has been besieged by people, a lot of whom, some lawyers, some others involved, i would characterize as being the moths who get too close to the fire. just can't resist staying away from something for their own self-promotion. casey did not kill her child. and i don't care how many people want to believe otherwise and
6:33pm
say i'm just a defense lawyer. i'm a defense lawyer. i have been one for 42 years. and i have handled quite a few homicide cases. you have to deal with facts that are truthful whether you like them or not. you have to deal with the evidence. that's why we have rules of evidence. and we had a case that was hard fought. we didn't have a judge that was helping us. we had a judge that was very stern in that courtroom about his rulings. we had all of the media hype in the world, as you know, everybody condemning casey, proclaiming her guilt until the jury came in and as you said, shocked the world. my gosh, they looked objectively at it and those people who choose not to believe that are not going to change their minds because they have watched piers morgan and cheney mason saying that. i understand that. all i can say is stop and
6:34pm
question. question authority. question the facts and say, okay, what did we miss that the jury got? this could go on forever. >> what is casey's relationship now with her family? obviously, the trial tore them all apart, but has there been any repairing of the damage there? >> i don't think so. i know casey would like to have a normal life, if there is such thing ever available in her future. it's not likely to be with a family that prosecuted her. it's not likely to be with someone who went to a grand jury and testified against her to help get her indicted. it's not likely to be family that did all they could to try to help the state kill her. i should never forgive those in the family that did that, and i don't think casey will either.
6:35pm
>> she's lost her daughter. she's lost her relationship with her closest family members. she's got no money. she's clearly, i would imagine, continues to feel vulnerable, frightened. you know her state of mind better than me. it's a pretty awful place to find yourself, particularly, if as the jury concluded, she was innocent of anything to do with her daughter's death. how is she coping with this on a human level? >> the best way i can describe it is with anxiety. casey wants to have a normal life. she wants to be left alone. she wants lawyers to quit suing her in meaningless, nonmare torious lawsuits that can only be characterized as being done for their own publicity and aggrandizement without merit. she needs to be left alone. and that's why she filed a
6:36pm
petition for bankruptcy, so the federal bankruptcy court can help her be left alone, and people just quit trying to profit off of her and her emotions and the tragedy. it's going to be a long time for her. >> does she have much exposure to meeting members of the public, and if she does, what is the kind of reaction that she gets? >> she does not have current exposure. i can tell you that there are members of the public still today who when they see me and/or some of the other lawyer team, confront and question and are argue menative. however, there are also substantially more now that are saying, you know, good job. i understand. i now know. i think the jury was right.
6:37pm
you know, they should not have convicted her. so along that process is casey. she's sitting back there where she can't go out for fear of retaliation. her personal safety is continually at risk. there are plenty of cowards out there that would try to confront this 105-pound little girl and challenge her because of their ignorance. that's not going to go away anytime soon, but her team of lawyers i helped assemble and we put together to do this are going to continue to fight for her, to protect her and help her try at some point to have a normal life. i don't know when that's going to be since we have media doing such cute things as saying she is the most hated woman in the world. how can she go do anything like that? how can she walk down the street of manhattan or miami or orlando
6:38pm
or houston, anywhere else, without people pointing and whispering and some wanting to get their few minutes of fame by assaulting and threatening her? we're doing our best to prevent that from happening so she will remain in seclusion as long as it takes. >> jay, thank you very much indeed for joining me. >> thank you. when we come back, the movie that's getting lots of ozker buzz, "silver linings playbook." and jennifer lawrence is racing to my studio at high speed and may or may not make it. this is actually quite dramatic. i hope she does.
6:39pm
6:40pm
6:41pm
6:42pm
it might have made you feel worse, but i didn't know anything. i didn't know how to handle it. i mean, us spending time now. >> scene from "silver linings playbook." it's funny, it's powerful. it's moving, it's inspiring.
6:43pm
here now, the man who made it happen. director and screen writer. welcome to you, david. we have jennifer lawrence speeding her way here. she may or may not make it in time. if she doesn't, we're going to interview her after the show and run it tomorrow. you're the guy who -- >> in the film. >> a diva. i expect nothing else. if i'm as talented as she is, i would be a diva, too. this is a real labor of love for you. the reason being the character played by bradley cooper is a bipolar character, he has mental problems, and the movie takes you through this journey and comes out of it on the other end. your son suffers from similar issues and it was a very personal issue. >> when you're a parent of a child with a mood disorder, it takes over your life. me and matthew's mother janet,
6:44pm
and you find yourself in a maelstrom of doctors because they have moods that can turn your house upside down. a simple conversation is very different than what people would expect normally. and i was very inspired when the whole thing to me is to make the people feel loved and supported and embraced. you would do anything for your child, wouldn't you? >> yes. >> i would do anything to help my child feel a part of the world. i thought, how wonderful it would be if you could make a movie that could be a great story, it could be funny, it could be real and emotional. and it would be about people like this. people jennifer and bradley play. >> what i like about it, it doesn't sugar coat the illness aspect. it doesn't try and enter some fantasy world with it. it's real, it's there, and it has to be dealt with. it's how the characters, quite uniquely, i think, all four of the lead characters in the movies have been oscar nominated. i can see why because they all
